Our Emerging Artist Showcase is one of the most-anticipated parts of our summer festival. We can't do it in person in 2020, so we're taking it online! Join us Sunday, August 9 at 7 pm to see five great new acts performing LIVE, and vote for your favorite. Who will bag our $500 prize?

See the Showcase page for more information — for audience members and for emerging artists whom we're excited to hear from!

The Showcase will present five folk acts (artists, duos or groups) of any age who are not yet regulars on the festival or concert series circuits.  We are seeking acoustic musicians playing roots-based styles, who are comfortable playing online, and who are equipped to give a live-stream performance.  If all that sounds like you, we encourage you to apply! 

The band pictured above is The Quixote Project, which took top honors at the 2019 Susquehanna Folk Festival Emerging Artist Showcase.
